Preventative maintenance saves plant and the budget

Endress+Hauser’s installed base Audit (IBA) is a comprehensive and supplier-independent audit of the existing instrumentation installed base of a plant or process. The balanced maintenance strategy development methodology has four main steps: Inventory and documentation (database); evaluation (process criticality assignment); asset maintainability assessment (risk of maintainability assessment); recommendations and reporting through consultation with the plant or process owner. This approach facilitates the following: Correct and balanced decision-making regarding required maintenance according to available resources and needs, including preventative maintenance and reactive maintenance strategies; reduction of the complexity of the plant, especially when there are considerable numbers of devices and manufacturers embedded within the installed base; identify obsolete plant assets and propose migration equivalents documentation that doesn’t represent the current plant status.
